4:00 pm
they are paying no property taxes, no corporate taxes, no sales taxes. and with over 300 locations, and 3.7 million square feet available, there's a place that's right for your business. see if startup-ny can work for you. go to [martha and mildred are good to. go. here's your invoice, ladies. a few stops later, and it looks like big ollie is on the mend. it might not seem that glamorous having an old pickup truck for an office... or filling your days looking down the south end of a heifer, but...i wouldn't have it any other way. look at that, i had my best month ever. and earned a shiny new office upgrade. i run on quickbooks. that's how i own it.
4:01 pm
liz: good afternoon, everybody, i'm liz claman. live here at midtown. plenty ever market action overseas. european stocks open. asian markets open. let's talk about european stocks. they slipped from seven-year highs. investors very cautious as greece and e.u. finance ministers had a meetings all day long. yet it ended with no resolution. both sides continue to play hardball over a new debt deal. there is not one. how will that impact us tomorrow? we're bringing in michael binger of gradient invests. he is worried rate cuts will impact markets here. he is not worried about greece. plus, jeff cleveland of payden & regal, watching the relationship between oil and the 10-year yield. jeff, i will begin with you. >> hi, liz. liz: earlier today we had ol' trading on globe best. it was electronic platform t was absolutely trading here. it went above $53 a barrel.
4:02 pm
what do we glean from that. >> if you look at the last six months, liz, one of the big things that stands out is the collapse in the price of oil, down about 50% over that time period. coins depth with that a fall in the u.s. -- couldn't dent with that, fall to 10-year treasury deal. if oil does stablize and even push a little bit higher here in the coming weeks that could signal a bottom or near term bottom at least in longer term u.s. interest rates. a lot of investors were in that trade over last few months. we may see yields in fact move higher. that is why we're watching the oil price every morning. >> so you have got to the formula. john donaldson has the actual timing here. you say between june and september the fed will raise rates, john, correct? >> they have been giving -- yes. they have been giving strong signals, both governors and regional fed presidents have been remarkably in unison giving
4:03 pm
winks and nods if not absolute hints this is coming. the timing is data dependent. chairman yellen has been very adamant in all of her testimony and notes from the meetings about that point. i think the, issue that is in front of them right now, is while they have reinforced that data dependency, they have also stuck a calendar reference in the form of patience which everybody interprets to mean at least two more meet frogs now. they really need to get that calendar reference out there. they don't want to be stuck by what the calendar says, rather than what the economic data says. liz: let me give you a little breaking news here. loretta meister of the cleveland federal reserve in the last 30 minutes, that a rate hike this year, is quote a very viable option, very viable option. i bring it to michael binger now. does that affect the way you investing for your client at
4:04 pm
all? >> no, i don't think so. if the economy is strong enough it warrants a rate hike i'm fine with. that i think it will be more towards the third quarter or fourth quarter. i don't think it will be sooner. but you know stocks are now up 2% for the year. that is better than down three, right? i mean people, you know, people are optimistic on europe. oil recovered, seems like some kind of a bottom in there. that brought commodity stocks up. apple has just been a monster and that really drives indexes because it is such a big component. we're sticking to our zero to 5% forecast. flattish year for stocks. nothing too bad or nothing too great. liz: is june too late? loretta is saying june at federal reserve. that might shock the market especially with people like warren buffett here seeing i don't see how they pull that off? they kept saying it will be in 2015 and now they're kind of stuck doing that, or, jeff, can we actually stand on our own two feet if we raise rates by nano
4:05 pm
inch? it is ridiculous we could handle it, right? >> right. zero fed funds rate is hedge level for the overnight rate and given what we've seen in the last 12 months for the u.s. labor market in particular, over three million jobs added, i think absolutely the u.s. economy can stand on its own two feet. the big question, liz, we've had, will they really hike with inflation as low as it is? we're at about 1.4% year-over-year on their favorite, their key gauge of inflation, the core pce. we think that could hang out below 1.5% throughout the year. do they really hike, absent sort of inflation pressure? that is the really key question. liz: i'm not sure anybody really knows but that brings us right to this, john donaldson. are you bearish, are you neutral or are you bullish right now? let's make people some money here. >> i think in terms of rates we're certainly conservative to being bearish. we do think rates will end up being a little higher.
4:06 pm
10-year treasury is at 2.05. could it have a trade some point during the year, back toward 2.70, 2.75, something like that? we think that is possible. maybe concept of a growth scare, where all of sudden people say gee, the could machine my is doing better than people expect, i think jeff hit one of the best nails right on the head, is framing this conversation in the right reference because we are at zero rates and a lot of the people who are more strident on the fact that the fed can not raise rates talk at though we're at mid-cycle rates and we're actually ratcheting toward a tightening. we're just taking off the emergency zero and, you know, the question becomes, is the economy in a position where the rates deserve to be at zero? we think no, it has gotten better than that. liz: okay. let's spin it forward then, jeff. we're not in a emergency situation anymore. >> we are not.
4:07 pm
>> the patient can not now lurch a little bit closer toward the door of the hospital and get the heck out of the hospital. what would you be investing in. >> checking out. >> what would you invest in? checking out more. >> we think there are opportunities in the bond market still, particularly high-yield bond market has taken a beating last six months. we think there are probably some opportunities there. liz, you led in the previous segment with what is going on in europe and don't forget the ecb is buying bonds, the bank of japan is buying bonds. that will leave a net negative amount of bonds for investors to buy this year. we still think u.s. assets will be a good place for global investors and u.s. investors to look. liz: before we bo, michael actually has two names. you're liking ups and emerson electric. why those two names? >> i think in a flattish market you really need to be more defensive. you need to buy stocks down and not hitting new highs.
4:08 pm
more importantly i think you need the 3% dividend in back pocket n a flattish year that add as lot to returns. liz: amen. >> these are great companies. they are blue chip. emerson is down because many some european exposure and because of some oil and gas exposure. i think they will survive. ups has a very high quality problem. amount of shipments and volume they had exploded in fourth quarter. that cost hem them a little bit. they will get the port strike fixed and don't want to buy them at highs of the year. liz: you don't want to buy them at highs of the year. i agree with that. john donaldson, jeff cleveland, good to see you. >> thanks. liz: bone-chilling arctic air follows record-setting snowfall. new england digs out of its fourth snowstorm this year. fox meteorologist, janice dean is here. you scared me last hour, tennessee, aside from boston is going to get a lot of ice. show some love to the tennessee people too.
4:09 pm
>> absolutely. i just want to talk about boston because they have seen record amounts of snow here. we'll be in a deep freeze for the foreseeable future with chance of more snow in days to come. the temperatures across the northeast into incredible numbers here, especially coming to the windchill, most dangerous part of this. you need to be indoors, overnight tonight certainly into tomorrow. this windchill is going to say with us for the next week or so, in some cases we'll struggle to feel like we're out of the single digits. so that is the problem there. we'll not see any melting at all. so what liz was talking about the is the threat for this freezing rain that is already hit the mid-south, portions of tennessee and kentucky, now moving in towards the carolinas and virginia. this is overnight tonight. the pinks here, that is where we've got the freezing rain mixture and we have ice storm warnings for portions of tennessee right now and i believe they're probably going to put some ice storm warnings for the carolinas as we go into overnight.
4:10 pm
the for d.c., this is the first big snow all season. for new york, long island and boston they have the tail end of this storm system which is great news. however i don't think any measurable snow is good news for boston area. to reiterate, as we go into tonight and tomorrow. look at ice accumulation. you can't be driving or outdoors. this is significant and draws. north of the area we see six to 12 inches especially higher elevations. this will go overnight into the rush hour tomorrow. be aware. first big storm for the mid-south, liz. updating you. liz: we feel for them definitely because they're not really used to it down there. >> they're not. >> thank you very much, janice dean. although they got hit last year with the polar vortex. there were not enough snow boots down there. hopefully they learned from last year. the obama administration releasing long-awaited regulations on drone use this came out in the last 24 hours. the policies would replace current near band on flying drones for commercial use.
4:11 pm
rich, i guess this is good for some commercial folks doing this already. they're happy. >> sure, liz, for small operators, long-awaited, fairly welcome set of rules to govern commercial drone use. for companies like amazon looking to deploy them widely to deliver packages to their customers this effectively bans their strategy. faa required that commercial drones weigh 55 pounds or less, travel 100 miles an hour or slower and stay within 500 feet of the ground. they must avoid flight paths of airplanes and helicopters and keep the drone in their sites all times. that is where amazon says the faa is throttling its delivery system. some in congress called these proposed rules too restrictive. in a statement, senator john hoeven north dakota republican says quote, the administration needs to outline an actual strategy for integration does the research required for the uas industry to reach full potential. technology is here. demand is here. ability for them to uas to use
4:12 pm
nas, national airspace must keep pace. they designed rules to inspect infrastructure, researchers to observe the environment and realtors to capture pictures of property. the faa stretches these rules are only proposed rules. the public can comment next 60 days. then officials can change them before approving or rejecting them. liz. liz: i think there were 30,000 comments from the public on hobby drones alone, rich, i read that. >> yeah. it is not uncommon to get tens -- look at net neutrality. want an example of proposed rules go away? that what happened with net neutrality. so many negative comments what the chairman put out last year killed that proposal. they had to go back to the drawing board. this no way is final. liz: thank you very much, rich edson on drones. we love to know what you think, try to be each-minded. should drones be legal for all use, or do they pose a risk? one dropped on the white house
4:13 pm
lawn. another one buzzed past the space needle. could have shattered glass. we don't want to clamp down on business opportunities. @fbnatb. we'll read some of your answers coming up. i'm here live. i want to hear from you guys. iphone, ipad, now an icar? apple may work on electric-branded vehicle. is apple crazy do to it without a partner in the car business? or can they, as they always have, go it alone? europe's finance minister saying a deal with greece unlikely. nothing happened today. they have gone home at least for now. should the e.u. say good-bye greece. or do they need to hold on tight to prevent another country like russia from swooping in? new report rankses one company as the most successful in the world. its stock has had annual return of more than 20% every year for nearly half a century? who is that? the question marks will be blown

is. liz: no greek deal. i'm telling you, doesn't matter if you don't own anything overseas, this will matter to your money. debt talks stalled after greece
4:18 pm
and european finance ministers failed to reach a new bailout deal for the country. they were meeting today. the deadline is february 28th. is it time to just let greece go from the european union or must we hold on tight for reasons way more important than just the eurozone? let's bring in our panel. gary kaltbaum, kaltbaum capital management and fox business contributor. steve lien lieb and fox business's jo ling kent. gary, hold on tight or let greece go. >> i think eventuality they're gone. here is the simple problem. when uh-oh bank a little bit of money, that is your problem. when you owe a lot of money that is the bank's problem. you could have extension of extension and kick the can down the road because greece decides to stick a certain finger up at eurozone and there will be writeoffs and capital.
4:19 pm
italy and spain possibly could follow suit. you have too be careful. i think they stay involved with the eurozone. liz: stay involved, you were talking about a lot of club med nations in europe, a lot of important nations in europe but what about strategic countries around greece that have nothing to do with the european union, steven, and i'm talking russia and china? >> yeah. i mean what people don't realize, enough, they're not paying enough attention, liz, to the fact that there is a major swing from west to east right now and both china and russia have their eyes on greece. right now russia is greece's major trading partner, the largest trading partner is russia. china wants to use the greek port as a starting point for a train that will go, start at greece, go all the way to hungary and be an outpost for trading all threw europe. liz: they are strategic i important. who is to say the putin will go in and say the black sea is sort of near the mediterranean.
4:20 pm
>> right. liz: jo ling, telling you right now, you look at greece at the moment, they seem tiny and insignificant. they are not. >> certainly geopolitically there is a big play here. there is no doubt that all of the other countries we haven't talked about yet have a huge stake in this. you have to look at the french finance ministers, seemingly very encouraged by possibility of a deal. then you move to germany, the finance minister says basically no way, jose. the broader regional and international political situation, seems like the greece deal may not happen but a lot of people want it to. liz: i would like to use gary k.'s, line, i would let greece take a powder. i hadn't heard that. >> me either. >> it is vent wally, liz. they're not good for the euro. >> we have to move on because there is something a little sexier than greece at the moment. "50 shades of grey" exploding at the box office with a record-setting 81.7 million debut. that grey is turning into green for companies, by with you ones,
4:21 pm
steven lieb? by the way it was number one in 34 different foreign markets. >> it is just a phenomena. everybody knew it would be a famom that. what is surprising people like our companies, massive companies like walmart, which cater church-going, christians, selling these kinds of things. liz: they have sexy -- >> helping sell viagra in their medicines, among their prescriptions but on the other hand they do face, the risks of some sort of a backlash. but i think, when i think about walmart, i think about something that warren buffett once said about actually, about your company now, "wall street journal." there is no work across the street from walmart. they can more or less do what they want and their customers will keep coming back. liz: obvious one is amazon, sold the book in the first place. >> 100 million copies sold overall.
4:22 pm
even if there is minority backlash, certainly a big play for a lot of companies. we can't forget the aarp did a valentine's guide based on the "50 shades of grey." they have a sense of humor. these products are not necessarily meant for what they look like they're for. >> comment here, kaltbaum, what do you think? >> well, i went to see it yesterday and i don't know how i am getting two hours of my life back, that is how bad it was. [laughing] look, when ever you have movies or books, people, trillions of people are reading, companies are going to take advantage of it. they will do everything possible to get the products out in front of them. you will see teddy bears in handcuffs, you name it, it will be out there. liz: hey, that is business, isn't it? also business, apple looking for the next hot product, beyond everyday mobile technology. got to move into cars? is apple taking on more than it can handle? can this really be profitable? would you buy one? plus, some investors watch technicals, some watch

4:31 pm
gets around it. >> we have to remember, this all drones under 55 pounds. they have a very heavy government lobbying effort. just because they aren't getting their way now in the proposal doesn't mean it is going to happen. plus often times the u.s. likes to follow in terms of technology. you look at the u.k., already driverless cars. you see a lot of drone testing in the united kingdom. perhaps the u.s. says we don't want to fool with this see what works, what doesn't and take the efficient route. liz: realtors are happy. they can take aerial shots and be within eyesight of these things, right? >> yeah. there are 70,000 pages in the federal register. i'm not for more. when you have something weighing 50 pounds going 100 miles-an-hour, i don't need that coming through my window. i don't mind regulations. then you can come back off the regulations as companies prove themselves. i like the word waiver. if companies show they know what the heck they are doing and are safety conscious, i'm all for it. liz: everybody has to be --

liz: let me tell you something. the market surprised a lot of people last week. they hit new highs with the nasdaq hitting a 15-year high. check out the s&p 500, setting a new all-time high on friday. so will the markets continue their momentum higher? we've got two managers, who have two very different ways of coming up with now what appears to be the same answer. the technical side, and the fundamental side. with me for the technical corner, j.c. parets, eagle bay capital founder. with the fundamental opinion, joe fami. joe, right off the bat, fundamentals, i call them the emotional side. it is basically the images of facts, the ceo, the comments, the markets. what gives you a sense from a fundamental opinion that the markets go higher? >> two biggest things fundamentally are earnings and interest rates drive the market. earnings are still strong. interest rates are low because of globally coordinated effort
4:39 pm
to pump liquidity into the system, keep interest rates low. we've seen so far this year 17 different countries cut rates. liz: central bank rate. >> central bank rate. we're making new highs but sentiment is high but not that many people are bullish. liz: they're missing out, aren't they? >> yeah. liz: j. consider, you believe the markets are going higher for completely different reason, x everything joe said. >> we do analysis from structural standpoint and from the tactical perspective. what we've seen over the last three months is a beautiful, healthy consolidation, filled with sector rotation. that to me, looking bigger picture, makes it very difficult to be bearish. rallied into november. consolidated major averages. look at dow jones industrial average, s&p 500. we've essentially gone nowhere. nasdaq 100 you just mentioned, transportation index, all in this sideways range for three months. from my perspective i see a big base ready to lift off to make new highs. more importantly we're already
4:40 pm
seeing breakouts in the mid-caps and in the russell 2000 small cap index, already making new highs, coming out of even bigger bases. so, as they say, the bigger the base, the higher in space. i think we're off to the races across thehboard. liz: sitting here with two gigantic bulls. i will have to play the bear. right off the bat leads me to wonder and our viewers want to know what u buying, joe based on your newfound belief. >> biotech. liz: volatile sector. >> strongest. outperformed the market last five years. still large caps have huge earnings growth and sales growth and small as mid-caps have huge potential. liz: i-shares is the way to do it? >> yeah. too tough to recommend specific stocks in the sector. i agree it is volatile. i would go with the etf for entire sector. liz: you say this beautiful performance for a year will continue? >> i think it will go higher. >> what are you buying, j.c. >> i continue with the theme.

4:42 pm
point is there some type of a shakeout? >> i think that there continues to be shakeouts. even though it has been straight up for the past five years, that there have been shakeouts. i'm bullish. there will continue to be shakeout, pullbacks, quick corrections based on global uncertainty or something in congress for example. but they are just going to be a buying opportunity. i think we're going higher. i'm not blindly bullish saying we're going to the moon straight up. liz: anybody like, gold, silver, oil? >> i think you stay away from all that stuff. you to your point talking about s&p and markets make new highs. i would argue s&p and dow are getting all glory. russell 2000 and mid-cap 400 have gone nowhere in a year. these are fresh breakouts and something new. liz: russell 3,000 hit a record friday. i look at that, that is massive -- >> agree 100%. liz: great to see you both, joe, j.c., the team to watch. coming to the same conclusion through different roads.
